is worried about, he is putting a firewall around obamacare right now because democrats are running away from it in droves and he is trying a last stand to put the best face of obamacare, you know, best face of the branding around obamacare that he can, because next year is an election year and it is so critical, and millions of americans are losing their health insurance this january 1st and they need to get signed up into obamacare quickly. >> but if they get a lot of people, if they get millions of americans signed up, the web site is working better, can't they undo that -- >> what is really interesting is republicans we all know the web spite is going to get fixed. the technology is going to eventually happen what we are do yotalking about now is the acces and affordability of obamacare. people's premiums are likely to go up, people's deductibles are going to go up, the access around to getting to their doctor is going to be troublesome and i think that is what you will see, along with the security and lack thereof of the exchanges. >> woodruff: so woodhouse, you hear what he is saying, e

was your problem with health care. >> my problem with health care -- we're talking about obamacare? >> rose: yes. >> i believe chd it was a once in a generation opportunity to separate this thing from the corporation and make the consumer of health care actually have choice and have skin in the game. i think one of the big problems with the health care system is we go to the doctor, we have no incentive to shop, we have no incentive to see what the costs are and as long as your corporation is paying the bills and you don't see that bill, that's the way it's going remain. i guess my biggest -- >> rose: so there's no intelligence at the decision point. >> right. there's none whatsoever. >> rose: or self-interest. >> right. we -- we have taken away the market, which you could use, very much so, to solve this problem. we've completely taken out of the equation. i guess my problem with obamacare, the more i understand now, is it's all so dishonest. and by that i mean -- so we're taking young healthy people and making them buy plans with stuff in them they don't need to subsidize people with pre-

-- the people obamacare is designed to help. they have nothing to fall back on if they become ill. a getting them signed up has been undermined by a website plagued by failure and incompetence. president vowed the law would not change. >> you've got good ideas? bring them to me. let's go. but we are not repealing it as long as i'm president. [applause] we will make it good for all americans. such thing as an obamacare health plan. here in washington, d.c. and in some states, they are expanding free care for those of low income. this website is helping people choose between several private plans. it makes picking a mortgage or pension look simple. it has become a symbol for the law that will almost certainly define obama hoss presidency. -- obama's presidency. many have been questioning his competency, and indeed, his presidency. folk fun at the failure, and also took advantage of a chance to criticize the coalition. they have seen the private sector fail and they believe the government can solve their problems. and now they have seen the government fail. i think they will have a much more ja

, then we had the government shutdown and the debt ceiling debate, and then we've had obamacare and all of the issues, forget the website and all of that, just the cost, what does it mean for my business, and as a result, there is tons of uncertainty in u.s. businesses. so businesses invested strongly in 2010, again in '11, again in '12 but this year they slowed up a bit. nonetheless, if you look at the cash that businesses have on their books, the profitability of u.s. corporations, they have never been more profitable. they are hiring. we're going to see a 200,000 job growth in the month of november, probably, and that tells me that we're about to see a surge in investment. boy, if corporations put the cash on their books to work, imagine the kind of surge we would see. >> what would it take to get then to go put that money to work number one and number two, become more confident? what's it going to take? >> you know, i think right now we're sort of -- we keep calling this economy at first trust the plow horse economy. it ain't a racehorse. it ain't going to run the kentucky derby but

republicans disapprove of the obamacare or affordable care act. we actually at half of our polling a thousand people about questions related to at fordable care ago. the other half about obamacare. essentially the numbers are about the same. and democrats were significantly more likely to support. >> woodruff: any greater sense of why people, why these young people feel so strongly? >> yeah, there was-- we're not actually too surprised by this. for the last several cycles that we've polled, we've seen the overall level of trust between young people and the powers within washington, d.c. whether the administration, republicans, democrats in congress, actually kind of lose trust every single day. so number one, coming out of washington, d.c. would have a lard time getting traction among millennials. also when you take a step back. when you think about the messages that millennials have been hearing, it is less about them, the benefits to them. it is more about it is necessary for them to join in order to compensate for older, sicker americans. so i don't think the narrative has been particularl

to be an attempt to do something. by the way republicans are saying this is an attempt to distract from obamacare. >> it is a long-term interest of his. the one-- to put an idea on at againa is usually what a president does in the 8th year of his presidency, not in what are we, the 6th or something, 5th. so he should still be focus on things about which he has actual action items. rather than just putting something on the agenda. do that later in the term but because of the stagnation in washington and in congress, i think he's decided to just be a more rhetorical president. just on the one point about the income inequality. if are you talking about the top 1%, i agree with mark, there has been this ridiculous increase in wages, ridiculous compensation screams on wall street, a lot of the socialization of profit. privatization of profits, socialization of risk. but if you are talking about the top 20% or top 30%, there i think you have a structural problem that ed kated people have become really good at marrying other educated people and passing their advantages. and i don't think you can do much
